San Diego Padres Kim Ha-seong continued his hitting streak for five consecutive games, but left a mark by recording five remaining bases.
Ha-seong Kim played as second baseman No. 1 in the game against the San Francisco Giants held at Petco Park on the 2nd (Korean time) and recorded 1 hit and 1 run in 5 at-bats. San Diego won 7-3 thanks to Kim Ha-seong’s tying score.
Ha-seong Kim hit a hit in his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning when the team was down 0-1. At a ball count of 2B1S, he caught San Francisco starter Tristan Beck’s 94.6 mph fastball toward the body and connected it with a line drive that flew toward center field.
The exit speed was 102.6 mph, hitting the center of the bat properly. Then, Fernando Tatis Jr. hit Beck’s 89.7 mph outside slider and hit a two-run shot that went slightly over the right fence, hitting home with Ha-seong Kim. San Diego then took a 3-0 lead with Juan Soto’s back-to-back arch with a solo shot in mid-month.
Ha-seong Kim retired with a fly to right field in his second at-bat with 2 outs and 1 base in the 2nd inning, leading 4-1. With a ball count of 2B2S, the 6th pitch, a 79 mph sweeper outside, missed and soared high to the right.
He also came to bat in the third inning with a 6-1 lead, but ended up hitting a grounder to second base in a chance to load the bases with two outs. On the 10th pitch from opposing left-hander Alex Wood, he pushed the 93.2 mph fastball outward with all his might, but it was aimed directly at the second baseman.
However, this at-bat left much to be desired. With a ball count of 3B1S, Wood’s 92 mph sinker on the 5th pitch went slightly outside, but the umpire called a strike. Kim Ha-seong, who judged it to be a ball and went to first base, returned to the plate with an expression that he found difficult to understand.
Then, on the 7th pitch, he pulled a 94 mph sinker, which was slightly off the left field line by about 50cm. If it had fallen inside, it could have been a double that brought in all three runners. Both the 5th and 7th pitches were unlucky.토토사이트
In the 6th inning, he hit a double play with no outs on first base. At full count, he successfully hit Wood’s 90 mph sinker on his 6th pitch, but the batted ball, which rolled at 100 mph, was caught by opposing second baseman Tyro Estrada near second base, resulting in a double out.
In the bottom of the 8th inning, ahead 7-2, he retired with a ground ball to third base. On this day, there were a total of 5 leading runners left behind by Ha-Seong Kim. Although there was some bad luck, there were moments when I was desperate for a hit.
Kim Ha-seong, who has continued to hit for five consecutive games, has a batting average of 0.277 and an OPS of 0.801, which is on the verge of collapsing from the 80% mark. The season score increased to 77.
